I must be out of the loop because for the longest time I had NO idea what sexting was, let alone how to do it. Sure we all get the point of it, text crossed with sex equals sext! My curiosity got the best of me and I pondered where it actually came from? I had no idea what this was all about until a few years ago when a governor or congressman got caught doing it and all shit hit the fan. First of all, yes I am naive and you might say that I am a bit behind the times in some areas, but really…my inquiry would be this; why would anyone do this where there could be a paper trail if they didn’t want to get caught? Are you people idiots, really? If you don’t care, then ok, but if you have something to hide or you need to be discrete, think real long and hard before you doing something like sexting.
This is the kind of question that causes me countless hours of sleep deprovation so I decided to research it. And by research, I mean hitting up good old Google. It appears that sexting first appeared way back in the dark days of 2004. This was before people took to taking naughty pics of themselves and posted them everywhere. Gone were the days when sending a risque text to the wrong person was still cause for acute embarrassment. Hello, there’s no holding back and lets talk dirty are the days of the new era. This should only be done by adults, but oh no…the younger kids are intrigued by it far more than many adults and it is sad to see how many children are adapting to this new behavior.
I’m going to go out on a limb here and state that I will probably catch a lot of crap for this but so be it; most of you who know me will know that I speak my mind and I don’t hold back my thoughts.
The true definition for sexting is sending sexually explicit messages via cell phone or instant messenger. As technology has advanced and cell phones have the capability to record and send photos and video, the practice of sending suggestive and explicit pictures has increased, especially among teens, which, btw this would not be happening with young kids if the parents did NOT get the kids cell phones at such early ages…I mean really? Is that necessary? Society has evolved so much now that cell phones with kids are a necessity. Might I make a simple suggestion? Find a way to block certain things so that your children cannot get into trouble.The cell phone, now like a loaded gun has a variety of options and so many ways for teens to get into trouble. No young children should have cell phones, period. We didn’t have devices back in the day and we all turned out just fine, so please, spare me the drama.
So now lets talk about college age students that sext. Sid you know that recently the University of Michigan looked into the sexting behavior of over 3,400 men and women between the ages of 18 and 24 and discovered that sending titillating texts is, believe it or not, quite normal. It’s just something that’s become part of the dating icon, and the researchers contend that or some warning of psychological problems, nor is it linked to risky sexual encounters. Sexters were not more likely than non-sexters to sleep with more people or have unprotected sex.
Listen up… It’s a brave new world out there, especially when technology is involved. Things are moving faster and faster. Indeed, the faster things move, the more abbreviated the steps become. Nowhere is that more true than when it comes to communication. So, it’s no wonder that texting has become a major part of many people’s lives.The evolution of sexting then should also come as no surprise – and I think it can be great fun for the adult set (and I mean strictly adults only).
It’s a clever way to keep things hot and an easy way to play even if you’re a little shy. Besides, sometimes it’s easier to say things via sext, than face to face. This way you get a reaction via text and it breaks down the way of shyness a lot easier for those who dare ask the questions one might never had the guts to investigate.
As for us in the adult world…I say why not? I was talking to a coworker today about not knowing what to write about and she suggested this, and I said “Hey what a great idea!” Thanks Nap! Then this evening I found myself doing some borderline sexting myself, all in a playful way of course. Thank You Pittsburgh, for making my night so enjoyable. There is something to be said about this man that is yet to be determined, however, he has my attention, and that is something that most men don’t get too easily.
For you adults reading this you might ask; why sext? Well why the hell not? In my opinion, and it is completely an unprofessional opinion at best… here are a few reasons to set fingers to keys: A day-long tease can lead to a night-long in-person session.The embarrassment factor is removed because you don’t have to see the person while you’re typing your naughty thoughts. It brings the fun back to sex. It’s not supposed to be so serious after all. If you are still in the flirting stage, it can help you to ease your way to the next step. It keeps you on your toes, thinking of new things to say and new ways to respond.But who knows, it sounds like the research is saying there’s a healthy, fun side of sexting.
